The characters in these books fight against the injustice to make their world more fair. Characters from The Outsiders experience injustice and fight against it. Greasers experience injustice in behalf of the fact that they are poor. This is confirmed with: “Greasers can’t walk alone too much or they’ll get jumped, or someone will come by and scream ‘Greaser!’ at them…”(Hinton 2). Greasers are judged for being poor, but the rich kids aren’t judged when they break the law for fun, when the greasers can barely obtain enough money to eat.
Greasers struggled far more than the Socs due to their sacrifices they made and fights they faced. They struggled for their family and friends in order to stick together and not fall apart. Dally even had to turn down his college scholarship to keep Ponyboy in school. Sodapop dropped out to help out also. Socs don’t even have to worry about any of those problems.Greasers are from the West while the Socs are from the East.
Some people believe that the Socs struggled more in The Outsiders because they are rich so everyone thinks they have everything they want, but really they do not have their parents attention, yet that’s really all they want and others believe the Greasers struggled more in The Outsiders because they have no money and have to work for what they want in life. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, both the Greasers and the Socs face different struggles in life, however, the Greasers have more difficult lives because they get jumped, lack of money,they get put down by the Socs and have titles over their heads. The Greasers are always getting put down and getting hurt by the Socs. In The Outsiders,Ponyboy states
Individuals regularly ceaselessly judge individuals without genuinely understanding their experience. Everybody does that unknowingly. By simply taking a gander at a man, individuals expect as opposed to know the individual's identity. In the book The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, Ponyboy and the Greasers posse live in the poor piece of town, also called the East Side. They are confronted with numerous battles every day particularly in light of the fact that they are Greasers, yet their number one issue was the Socs, the rich children, who lived in the West Side of the town.
However, my friends thought I was doing too much and started calling me names like; nerd, boring, no fun life girl etc. Peers and some of my family thought I had nothing else to do with my life than to study. Moreover, my friends were not the most intelligent but they were amusing, entertaining and awesome in class. Teachers appreciated them more in class. I wanted to be like them so I tried to get a bad grade in school just to
The evidence also shows that Ponyboy is an outsider because he gets put into A classes with other socs because he's supposed to be smart. Ponyboy is an outsider because he’s not like others in his class and others in his class think it’s funny how they put him in A
Therefore, he is powerful for the very reason that he is “untouchable.” He does not use the power for kindness but uses it to show who is best and in a bullying matter. Curley is not a kind fellow and not a lot of people are his friend in the book. He is described as a “thin young man with a brown face and a head of tightly curled hair.” Candy, in the beginning of the book, indicates that Curly is a boxer and likes to make trouble and fights especially with bigger men. He is not very nice towards his newly wedded wife either. The book does not give her a name and refers to her as “Curley’s wife”.
On the other side, Cherry characterized the greasers to be too emotional which led them to antagonize the Socs and causing conflicts. Throughout the book, the theme rich vs poor reflected the Socs and greasers. As the conflict continues, it slowly came to an end when the Socs became more humanized by the death of Bob. As a gang, the greasers were always terrorized by the Socs which created many conflicts. For instance, Socs
Scout and Jem are continually made fun of by their peers who call them and Atticus “nigger lovers”. People who were friends now hate them(new subproof), their friends from school now make fun of them because Scout and Jem’s Father is siding with a black man on the case. Some say it was good for Scout and Jem to learn to stand up for their morals at a young age(antithesis), but it was not healthy for Scout and Jem to experience such social loss. They are impressionable children who definitely could have sided with their peers on the issue of segregation. It was Atticus’s reasoning, Calpurnia’s kindness, and the black community’s love that allowed the children to stand with them.
Mason Cooley once said,”The lonely become either thoughtful or empty.” Feeling alone has always been a big issue, whether it is in reality or in a fictional sense. Of Mice and Men demonstrates through the characters George, Crooks, and Curley’s wife, how a person's very surroundings can lead them to feeling lonely. George is always trying to get Lennie to understand his feelings or the importance of things, but Lennie’s inattentive isn’t helping. Crooks has to deal with discrimination because of his skin color and is all alone due to this. All the guy wants is some company.
In the book, “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton there are two main social groups, the Socs and the greasers. The Socs, and the greasers are enemies in the town of Tulsa and often get into fights just because they are different. Socs and greasers often stereotype each other just based on one experience with one their friends. To start off, there are many instances of greasers stereotyping Socs, but here are just a few examples.
Huckleberry Finn was an outcast in the town of St. Petersburg that was the son of the town drunkard. He was hated by all the mothers with a passion. They hated him because he was wild, bad, and uncivilized. Huck did not have to answer to anyone and was free to do anything he choose to do. Another reason for despising him would be because all of their children wanted to be like him.
